I almost forgot about these photos of Melbourne!
As much as I am afraid of heights, I've always been drawn to high places (with a secure floor and wall protecting me, of course) and I heard that Eureka Skydeck 88 had an amazing view of the city of Melbourne and beyond, so I had to go! According to the visitor information, this is the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemesphere.
So after a quick lunch, where I got to see the girls again, I took a walk around the city for a bit and headed towards Eureka Tower. I initially thought it was an office building but later learned that it is in fact a residential tower. I'm not sure how I would feel about living so high above the ground. But it does have an amazing view, that's for sure.
Isn't the city of Melbourne beautiful from above?
Here are some photos:
By the end of this trip, I was almost an expert at taking selfies!
The tall building on the left is the Eureka Tower.
There were some binoculars that faced city landmarks...this was Flinders Street Station.
There was also a corner of the observation deck where you could step outdoors.
Before I knew it it was dark outside and the city was covered in lights!
The night view was gorgoues...and loved seeing the river we kayaked from above :)
Then it was back to the Southern Cross Station to head to the airport! x
